Wow, very good information, thanks everyone!
To Vidaloco- 4-8 MPH? I used my friend's GPS yesterday and found that she usually does about 5 or 6 in a normal walk. So, one less thing to worry about. Yays! And about the feet; do they even make hoof boots big enough? Her feet are almost draft sized.
To Painted Horse- Wow, that was some REALLY good information, and alot of help. I am very, very grateful and will save that whole post on my computer for future reference.
To Miss Katie: I've never heard anything like this before, but I can see how it would work. Thanks!
